“Calming and cooling !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Despite it being a boiling hot day , this park offers a calming , cooling atmosphere. You can get a bus back to the port but this is a really pleasant stroll back to our ship. Well worth a stroll .

“An oasis well worth visiting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We spent about 3 hours touring the gardens on a very hot day early in September. The part of the gardens surrounding the house and stables are absolutely fantastic. An abundance of mature trees, ferns, palms and banana trees, along with numerous waterways, fountains and ponds provided and oasis from the heat. There is a regular tourist bus that runs directly from the bus station to the gardens saving the walk to and from the number 2 bus. Make a point of visiting the cafe, excellent food and refreshing juices.

“If you have plenty of time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I was there end of August during the day.
It was nice but nothing special. It's very quite there, I haven't seen more than 5 people. I think it's very good place to have weddings as they have lots of facilities for this.
The entrance is 5-6 Euro. There is a small cafe on the territory. A lot of benches on which you can sit down or lie down and have rest in the shade of the trees.

I got there by the 2nd bus from the center and walked 15-20 minutes from the last stop of the bus. Not very convenient walking, but it's ok. There is a parking near the garden.

“An oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Summer is probably not the best time to visit, but we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere,, running water and cool tree-lined walkways.

“Botanic gardens- worth the effort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This was an excellent attraction, but difficult to get to Mon-Friday.
A number 2 bus will get you to within 15 minutes of the gardens, but it is a tricky walk along a busy road.
Well worth the effort however; the gardens are beautiful and well laid out. Allow a couple of hours, and make sure you try the cafe - fantastic home baked food and very friendly service.
